Debbie ~ Coppell, TX

Entertainment: The Michael Jackson show was good, some of the others were mediocre but this definietely would not stop me from coming back or not recommending the resort to friends.
Accommodations: The rooms were clean and worked well for us, I wasn't that fond of the decor but since we spent so little time in the room it certainly did not have an impact on our vacation!

Ellen ~ Parker, CO

Beach: Emily had told me the beach was a black sand beach
Entertainment: Could use more tables at casino
